So I know I haven't been on dA for like 2 months but I finally got myself on to clean out my messages, notes, deviations, submissions, etc. I'm back down to 0 in the messages which is where I like it. I've been dealing with a lot of crap lately bot mentally and physically and I don't really know what's going on most of the time. Something is seriously wrong with me I know that, but I don't really have any way of going to any kind of doctor (MD or otherwise) mainly because I have absolutely no money at the moment. I've been trying to get more work but I'm about to give up doing art work and just go out and get a job at a Hobby Lobby or something and shove art work to wayside for "only when I have time."
Which is why I would like to bring up my Society6 store and my Patreon page!
On Society6, you can purchase select pieces of my art that I've made available as t-shirts, mugs, iphone cases, prints, stretched canvases, even rugs and shower curtains! I may not get very much at all for every purchase, but it's something. Go check it out!
A lot of my art will start going straight to Patreon only and won't be made available to view or purchase anywhere else for at least a week to a month after it's put up on Patreon. This is because people can now choose to support me and my art by paying however they want each month (I have it set per month rather than per piece uploaded) so that I can actually have more inspiration to do some work. While you can support me with any amount, I generally won't be posting finished pieces until my patronage gets high enough. Only patrons will be able to view my work! I also plan to use this site to premiere the comics I'm working on! If you can't send support, then maybe you could tell others about it so that I can pay rent AND buy gas for my car, and maybe one day I'll be able to buy food with this money as well! So please, take a look! Share! And especially, pledge!

Anyway, here's hoping I'll be keeping up with dA again from now on. Thanks everyone!
